|On October 14, 2012, we received a text from our youngest son and his wife -|
"We are becoming puppy parents" - along with this picture.
|October 18, a second text and picture - |
"These are the two boys we get to choose from."
October 25 - "We chose the one on the right."
|November 8 - "His name is Royer."|
December 18 - "He is getting so big! And even sits on command now!"
|December 22-26 Royer came to visit us while his parents were gone, |
and we became Royer people, even though we are not dog people.
|January 4 - Royer has doubled his weight |
to 16 pounds since they first brought him home.
January 4 - "I love my new toy, Grandma and Grandpa!"
January 4 - "Royer should double his weight again by February 4, to 30 pounds.
He'll be 50 pounds when he's full grown.
August 8 - Uh, oops! A bit more than 50 pounds - 67 pounds and climbing!
But they're not taking him back. He's definitely part of the family now.
